12.5 perfect ABV Bottled 10/16/2015 .... Black pour and a gorgeous brown head with sticky lacing .... aroma is of oak, vanilla, coconut, dark chocolate, light bourbon notes, but man the barrel is very evident here also has notes of roasted and caramel malts .... taste is very dry oak, vanilla, coconut, dark chocolate, light bourbon notes and roasted qualities .... has a sweetness/nougat flavor to it that comes out more as it warms ... the mouth feel and body of this beer is very rich and complex ... the finish has a hint of bourbon booziness and continues the dry oak and sweet/coconut theme ... They don’t come much better than this snoworsummer (6067) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Draft at the Barrel Bar. Pours dark black/brown with a fizzy light brown head. Tastes like dark chocolate syrup, booze, woody malt, light ash, and molasses. Medium body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like dark chocolate syrup, woody malt, light ash, booze, and molasses. ajnepple (7052) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2015
On tap at the Great Divide Barrel Bar, side by side with Regular, Oak-Aged and Oatmeal versions of Yeti. Black appearance with a small, mostly dissipating brown head. Aroma of bourbon spice, vanilla, oak, chocolate, caramel and a hint of dark fruits. Similar flavor. Full body with soft carbonation and a smooth, creamy feel. Pretty nice, but not one of my favorite versions of Yeti. notalush (5922) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Taster at the barrel bar - black pour - nose of treacle, tamarind, fig, brown sugar, light bourbon - flavor is similar - slight umami character up front before getting sweet, with notes of tamarind, treacle, cookie dough, vanilla - touches of smoke - considering how long it was in the barrels, it is surprisingly smooth and low in the booziness - slick texture and a slightly spicy finish - in reality, not any better than regular Yeti, for a much higher price, but glad to have tried it.

Tap at Great Divide Barrel Room. Pours black, nice brown head that fades to a ring. Aroma is whiskey, vanilla, oak, cocoa, lightly sweet. Taste is light whiskey, vanilla, faint oak, chocolate and toast. Very balanced whiskey in this. Not over the top, alcohol is balanced well. Full bodied, medium carbonation. Faint alcohol burn on the palate. Awesome!

Rich with its dark chocolate and mocha bean flavors, showing toasty oak and whiskey nuances that lingers with a moderate hop bite. Soft and creamy all the way through, heat covered well. rosskyle (761) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2015
